    At least 90210 went up a notch…
    I find that since the new showrunners took over there is a real change in the tone of the series… Before, I used to watch it because it was so bad it was good… but now it’s actually good!!

  • Ace

    Finally! Idol did something good and helped out Fringe. Hopefully it will help it build an audience before season’s end.

  • Nick

    It’s still quite interesting that Reaper is outdrawing 90210, and Reaper goes head-to-head with American Idol. Think that’ll count when CW is filling out their sked for the fall? Not as long as dumb and dumber are in charge.

  • Jacob

    I agree Irish Joe. There’s actual drama and conflict and more than 2 characters are actually interesting now. Hopefully it continues to get much better.

    Nick, Jacob,

    Unfortunately for REAPER’s renewal chances, 90210 is a known brand worldwide that can be sold around the world.

    I have a question What exactly do the second Numbers say?

  • Ace

    I am aware that this has nothing to do with the topic, but Variety just released ABC’s summer lineup…including when Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone episodes will be burned:

    ABC is also turning its Saturday night 10 p.m. slot into burn-off theater. In what the network oughta dub “Last Chance TV,” left over episodes of canceled series will be featured: “Pushing Daisies” from May 30 through June 13; “Eli Stone” from June 20 through July 11; and “Dirty Sexy Money” from July 18 through August 8.

    I’m glad to see that 90210 is starting to get its veiwers back! Becuase it is actually good now!

    The 90210 promos are terrible! that's the reason for the ratings of the show… cw is not making a good job with the promotion. 90210 is GREAT! and so is melrose
